Arsenal winger Andrey Arshavin has rejected the offers of joining Dynamo Moscow rather is willing to fight for places at the London club.
The 31-year-old who joined the Gunners in the January transfer window of 2009 took the league by storm and was selected the second best Arsenal player of the season via a poll.
However, his form has dipped considerably in recent years and as a consequence the player has dropped down the pecking orders at the club behind Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gervinho.
Last season Arsene Wenger sent him on loan to his boyhood club Zenith St Petersburg where his performance earned him a chance to play for his national side in the recently concluded Euro 2012.
Despite showing few flashes of brilliance, Arshavin couldn’t guide his team to the next rounds of the competition and it didn’t catch the attention of Wenger either who has given him the permission to seek for other opportunities elsewhere.
Zenith came back for him strongly in the summer and now Russian outfit Dynamo Moscow have made an offer to sign him on the eve of Russian transfer deadline day but the winger snubbed their advances.
‘I wanted to add this player to the team, but Andrey said no to Dynamo,’ Dan Petrescu, the Dynamo coach announced.
